Melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, may soon be easier to detect, even at early stages, thanks to a group of McMaster University students. Not only that, but the device is significantly less expensive than other detection methods, making it a highly cost-effective solution that could revolutionize how melanomas are identified.

There are limits to how accurately you can measure things. Think of an X-ray image: it is likely quite blurry and something only an expert physician can interpret properly. The contrast between different tissues is rather poor but could be improved by longer exposure times, higher intensity, or by taking several images and overlapping them.
A team of researchers have developed an artificial tactile sensor that mimics the ability of human skin to detect surface information, such as shapes, patterns and structures. This may be one step closer to making electronic devices and robots that can perceive sensations such as roughness and smoothness.
Different from the inorganic counterparts like silicon, organic semiconductors can operate under bending or stretching. Usually a thinner film can have stronger capability to bend. Other than bending, a thinner or smaller device can also offer a faster response time which is particular important for sensor application if immediate information is needed.

Researchers reported a high-performance and transparent nanoforce touch sensor by developing a thin, flexible, and transparent hierarchical nanocomposite (HNC) film. The research team says their sensor simultaneously features all the necessary characters for industrial-grade application: high sensitivity, transparency, bending insensitivity, and manufacturability.
University of Arizona startup GUIA has licensed a mining communication and sensor platform developed by faculty in the UA’s College of Engineering and Lowell Institute for Mineral Resources.
